At Dredging Corporation of India, G.Y.V. Victor, MD and CEO, administered the integrity pledge to all the employees at the head office in the city and at different projects across the country.

Speaking on the occasion, he emphasised for corrupt-free practices by adopting transparent technological-based initiatives in the organisation like e-governance, e-office and technology-based procurement and automation processes.

He has assured that the DCI management will act swiftly to take strict and stringent action against anyone at any level found involved in corrupt practices.

Chief guest of the occasion, S. Sumitra, Principal of Law College, Andhra University, said that the development of the nation is hindered because of corruption and corruption has a negative effect even on the good works done.

A.K. Dasgupta, Joint General Manager (Legal) DCIL, also spoke.

The Indian Institute of Management Visakhapatnam also observed the Vigilance Awareness week on this year’s theme ‘Independent India @75: Self-Reliance with Integrity.’

Speaking on occasion, M. Chandrasekhar, Director of IIMV, said, “The most basic step one has to follow to alienate corruption is by doing the work righteously even when one isn’t under the eyes of supervision. We should follow the protocols laid down by the government meticulously to be a righteous citizen of the country.”
